    Whatda ya mean ? Official Nintendo joy cons or the Mayflash magic NS shit?
    Either one works fine regardless. Any CFW will still let you use your Nintendo joy cons remotely plug and play style, Mayflash on the other hand you need to buy extra accessories (20$ usb dongle) to use PS or Xbox Bluetooth controllers. Same as OFW. CFW adds software not hardware that wasnt already there to begin with.

    First and foremost ,sensing your precautions tone, back up your raw/system nand with both boot partitions ASAP.

    1.Reguarding your #2 question Im gonna go out on a limb and say no because your already planning on hacking it (stay in airplane mode) and latest firmware depends on really how patient you are. Assuming you have a new unpatched 4.1 switch you might wanna stay on that for the most convenient means of using atmospheres CFW or the notorious unreleased Deja Vu in the future. If your impatient update and then get SX OS and play all the xci and nsp dumps you can get your dirty hands on. If you do update, backup your nand again with every FW change. Just beware efuses will burn out once youve committed to updating FW by normal means. If you care about your efuses then follow this guide.
    2.No hack atm is considered safe read this to gauge whats evolving with hacking risks involved and Nintendos theoretical banning telemetry. As far as the best thing.. SX OS has most to offer for for playing games and being more on the user friendly side of things if thats what you mean by best. Goole search for sx os.
    3.If you care about being banned Im gonna say no once you've altered your switch in anyway you've dug your grave and gonna have to lay in it if your console (or account at the most extreme case) is banned. Online without risks is not a thing yet. If you wanna be clean and risk free once again to go online at any point, restore your nand to an "untainted state" . Which is why I recommended you back up your nand to begin with before doing anything.
    4.Completely circumstantial I personally have game files that range from 30 MB to 14 GB in file size. So depending on what games you choose can make or break your 200GB SD card.

    Is it a bad idea to clear my error logs? I've heard people say it got them banned, just wanted to check.

    Can I unplug the USB C as soon as I inject the payload or do I have to wait for a certain period of time?

    5.0.0 really upped the info in Crash Reports: http://switchbrew.org/index.php?title=Creport&curid=147&diff=4799&oldid=1899 …. Be careful with tools like dreport, too, it looks like erpt maintains statistics about reports saved/uploaded/failed to upload, deleting may cause detectably inconsistent statistics.

    Considering the source ..yes

    As soon as the payload is injected, waiting is not necessary.

    Has anyone running TX OS being able to run the NSwitchDebugger from here https://ux.getuploader.com/GAMES24/download/250? It's a ram editor that will allow you to mod games but I read that it's not supported by TX OS. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.

    So far, its the safest best. Not 100% safe since you need to hack the console to make the backup, but its much better than everything we else have to offer at the moment.
    ReiNX seems to be the upcoming alternative to SX OS in that it will play backups (both .XCI and .NSP) as well as not costing a dime. The issue is that there is still no release date for it not to mention it will not come with something as convenient as the dongle for sending payloads. However, making something like the dongle requires a certain amount of skill from a user and may never have a free alternative.
    You can unplug it as long as you have confirmation that the payload has been sent. Keeping it plugged in after sending payload automatically charges the device.
    Considering that I haven't seen this tool name-dropped on GBATemp yet, I'm not sure it even works on non-SX OS CFWs.

    I see, thanks. But doesn't TX OS allow you to load another CFW? Can I load hekate and then use this tool for my purchased games?

    That's why the guide makes you use Hekate. I'm just saying you can't use that tool and play your backups via SX OS simultaneously.

    I am ready to do this but need some guidance.

    I have a 4.0.1 Switch.
    I have a 3d printed Jig.
    I have ordered SX Pro and am waiting for it to be shipped.

    I got into RCM and dumped my Nand. I want to update to 5.0.2 or latest fw but also want Exfat support. I was going to use this guide...

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...tch-console-on-any-ofw-without-update.505182/

    But I need to know about the encryption keys. Is there supposed to be a spaces between the "Key_00 and = sign and the = sign and the actually key sequence?

    Also, if I then use this guide after getting exfat support...

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...nofficially-without-burning-any-fuses.507461/

    Will I lose Exfat support? Also, how do I ensure I do not lose cartridge slot usability?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello everyone, I've got a new switch on 1.0.0, it's never been connected to the internet and I'm planning on using it for online and never hack it. Is it safe to update from 1.0.0 directly to 5.1.0? I read something about burning fuses but I'm not sure.

    The simple answer is we don't know but I can explain where this answer comes from.

    No one has been banned for updating without burning fuses alone (yet) meaning we can say its theoretically safe, however people have been banned despite doing this meaning its possible that updating without burning fuses led to their ban. On top of that, we don't know what type of information Nintendo receives when the console is online as well as which information will lead to a ban. In short, be prepared to face a ban for doing anything modifications to your console that violates Nintendo's Terms of Service.

    Anyways, here is the guide should you choose to follow it: https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-...nofficially-without-burning-any-fuses.507461/

    There is an easier but riskier alternative that requires the use of something that has a very high effectiveness in booting RCM: https://gbatemp.net/threads/an-easy...ch-firmware-without-burning-any-fuses.511847/

    So if I will never hack it's safe to update normally and don't worry about fuses? I have a banned switch that I use for all the hacking stuff, I want that 1.0.0 switch for online playing 100% legal
